"If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia."

"Can't you imagine how good going through with this will make you feel?
I promise no one will ever know
There will be no chance of you getting caught
They never loved you anyway
So come on, be a man
And do what you are compelled to do
(Save me, God!)"
Disturbed, "Voices"

"My room's comfortably small
With rubber lining the walls
And there's someone always calling my name
He calls when I'm alone
And he calls when I'm not home
And he calls when I'm stuck out in the rain
I'm insane, I'm insane
I'm insane, I'm insane"
They Might Be Giants, "Absolutely Bill's Mood"

"It won't give up, it wants me dead
Goddamn this noise inside my head"
Nine Inch Nails, "The Becoming"

"Voices, these voices, I hear them, and when they talk I'll
follow, I'll follow, I'll follow what they say..."
Eminem, "Guilty Conscience"

"And the voices told me to blow you away! (You're gonna fall for me, you're gonna fall for me)"
The Offspring, "Special Delivery"

"I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head"
Rihanna, "The Monster"

"That was some quality playing there, courtesy of raocow and friends. The friends are the many voices just kinda chillin' in my head... I don't hear them, but they're there."

"You know... they say when you talk to God, it's prayer, but when God talks to you, it's schizophrenia."
Fox Mulder, The X-Files

"Hearing the voice of God speaking to you is reassuring on one level, but on another level it means you’re hearing voices."

Earth: I think... I think it's speaking to me.
Jupiter: I don't hear anything.
Earth: No, not from out there. It's like it's coming from... inside of me?

"They're the voices in my head (You're such a hack)
Saying things that shouldn't be said (You need Prozac)
I just hope that they will (No, we won't) go away..."
Stephen Lynch, "Voices in My Head"

John Crichton: I've been, uh, having these.... Well I wouldn't exactly call them hallucinations - I've been having these... flashes of Scorpius.
Aeryn Sun: Flashes? Like memories?
John Crichton: No, they're not memories. It's more like he's talking to me. Have you ever been in a... in a crowded room and everybody's talking all at the same time, so you can't hear anybody and suddenly someone says your name, and then, like crystal, you hear every word they say. No matter how far away they are, it's like they're talking only to you.
Aeryn Sun: What is Scorpius saying to you?
John Crichton: He says he's gonna get me. He says he already has, I just don't know it yet.

Bojack: Hollyhock, I'm glad you're here. If I'm shitty, that's just because I'm shitty, and you're allowed to be mad at me. But you need to know that, whatever I do, it's not your fault.
Hollyhock: I know. I mean, I know, but I don't always know, you know? Like, sometimes, I have this tiny voice in the back of my head that goes like, "Hey, everyone hates you, and they're not wrong to feel that way."
Hollyhock: That voice... the one that tells you you're stupid, and worthless, and ugly?
BoJack: Yeah?
Hollyhock: It goes away, right? It's just, like, a dumb teenage-girl thing, but then it goes away?
BoJack: (long pause) Yeah.
BoJack Horseman, "Stupid Piece of Sh*t"
